The Lyrics

You left this world too soon Jim. R.I.P.
French-fry 'tater, think I'll eat some at the mall
See the number of my order is 1-0-5-8
The fries are in a tray, but how am I gonna pay?
Gave my last dime to a hobo I really hated

Isn't that the way she said to go
And don't forget your salt
And give me some mustard if you can find it
Hurry up now just give me the packet; Whoa
Where the hell's my Coke? Should come with the fries
I only wish your words weren't filled with lies
This just can't be real
That's not my happy meal

French-fry 'tater, think I'll eat some at the mall
'Cause I can't eat the number you just gave me
There's something in my fries,
You know this happens everytime
I think about a mall that I thought would save me

Isn't that the way she said to go
And don't forget your salt
And give me some mustard if you can find it
Hurry up now just give me the packet; Whoa
Where the hell's my Coke? Should come with the fries
I only wish your words weren't filled with lies
This just can't be real
That's not my happy meal

No no no no, that's not my happy meal

French-fry 'tater, let's just forget about the mall
No one there, I really hate bein' lied to
Thank you for this crime, you take so much more than my time
And gimme back my dime

Isn't that the way she said to go
And don't forget your salt
And give me some mustard if you can find it
Hurry up now just give me the packet; Whoa,
Where the hell's my Coke? Should come with the fries
I only wish your words weren't filled with lies
This just wasn't real
That's not my happy meal
